What is Tension?

The most important application of Newton’s motion Laws is the explanation of tension. Ropes and strings are very handy in machines and mechanical systems. These are used to push or pull heavy loads. We can see the tension in using of ropes or cables. If we consider a load which is pulled by a rope, a person is exerting a force at one end of the rope who’s not directly in the contact of the block. Thus, the force which is felt by block through the use of rope is called tension force In case of mass-less rope in classical mechanics, the force is transmitted from one side to the other side. These mass-less ropes feel two equal tension forces except in the opposite direction. We can take an example of string, force is applied in string musical instruments. The string tension is static force which is acted on these instruments. Here we discuss more about this tension force and its mathematical formulation in detail
